How to Find the Right Adult Orthodontic Option for You

Power Prox Six Month Braces | Lucio H. Kim DDS

Are you an adult who’s self-conscious about your crooked or crowded teeth? Do you wish there was an easier solution than years of metal orthodontics?

Fortunately, today you have numerous options that are explicitly designed with the adult lifestyle in mind. Treatment with adult orthodontics is typically more convenient, requires less maintenance, and delivers faster results than bracket and wire braces.

In fact, you have so many options that it can be confusing to decide which is best for your needs. Here are a couple of innovative treatments that you may want to consider:

Inman Aligners in 91207

Treatment with Inman Aligners involves using a removable orthodontic alignment system that fits over your teeth. The inner section of the aligner pushes your teeth outward while the outer portion pushes your teeth inward. This unique opposing force is designed to move your teeth quickly into their proper position.

Adults appreciate Inman Aligners because desired results can often be achieved quickly, and some patients have seen results in as little as six weeks. Another benefit for adults is that the aligners can be removed easily for brushing, flossing, and eating.

Power Prox Six Month Braces

Another short-term orthodontic option to consider is Power Prox Six Month Braces. This treatment involves using clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to gently move teeth into proper position. Brackets can be placed on the outside of teeth or the lingual (tongue) side so that no one can see them when you smile. Even though you will be wearing brackets and wires, treatment will be completed quickly and gently.
